NEW YEAR – NEW BLOG

Good evening beautiful souls,

First of all I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year!!! I hope 2018 will be filled with much excitement, laughter and the reaching of your goals!

The beginning of a new year always fills me with so much inspiration and motivation and so I thought this would be the perfect time to make some changes and update my blog. I have spent the past few days working on alterations and planning ahead. I felt it appropriate for my first blog post of the new year to be an introduction to my new blog and the changes I have made.

Here’s what’s new:

  • I decided to invest in my own domain name http://www.simplycarinaxo.com
  • I spruced up my blog with a new design and layout
  • I have added a SHOP page, which features some of my current favourites and staple goods from household items or entertainment to beauty and health
  • I will be trying my very best to post more regularly, 3 times a week – Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evenings

I am looking forward to continuing my blog and making improvements. I hope you like the changes and as always I’d be glad for any feedback.

Love Carina xo

 

SELLING MY PRINTS

Hey guys, 

I thought I’d show you a little of my art work today. In the summer I graduated with a degree in fine art. In my last year I specialised in drypoint engravings. The method I use is engraving into perspex before inking the plate up and rolling it through the printing press. Since graduating I sadly haven’t been able to do any print making as I do not own my own printing press, but here are some of my old prints which I am now trying to sell to at my dads cafe. Hopefully I will also soon get round to making and etsy account.

“The ultimate test of man’s conscience may be his willingness to sacrifice something today for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard.” ― Gaylord Nelson

“It’s going to take all of us, gathering our voices and acting together. Saying,”Not on our watch” to create a future for humans, animals and the environment.” ― Eileen Anglin

I am slowly becoming a little bit of an Eco warrior, don’t get me wrong I don’t nearly do enough, but it’s a ‘I don’t nearly do enough yet’. I am working on it, slowly making small changes and that’s all I’d like to ask of everyone too! If we all work together to change small habits we can make big changes!

Our societies are currently living such unsustainable lives. We are hurting our earth, its inhabitants and our ecosystem – something needs to change!!! Let’s all start making some little changes – every little helps and it’s important we all play our part and look after the earth!!!

I will be writing more detailed posts in the future about the changes I have been making to do my part to help the environment! So keep your eyes peeled!
